About Us

Mission Statement

Our mission at Imagine Academy for Autism is to help children, and the families of these children, diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and Aspergers Syndrome.
 
Imagine Academy is an established school teaching autistic children, ages 5-21, on a one-to-one basis utilizing a multidisciplinary approach.  This includes two widely accepted methods:  Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), and DIR®/Floortime™.  In addition, the school utilizes many new techniques that show significant merit.  We include related services such as speech, occupational and physical therapies as well as yoga, music therapy and art education.  In order to allow each child to continue his/her progress at home, parent and family training is a cornerstone of the daily curriculum.
